There is evidence of human existence in the Port Talbot area from prehistoric times in the form of farming ditches dating back to the Bronze Age on Mynnydd (Mountain) Margam. There is also an Iron Age fort on Mynnydd Dinas. There are traces of an Iron Age settlement too, and of course, the Romans were in the area and introduced deer into it. Port Talbot grew from the town of Aberafon (or Aberavon) which was founded in the 11th century, after the Norman Conquest of 1066. Margam Abbey was founded by Cisterican monks in the 12th century. The Talbot family have inhabited the town for centuries, with the local landowner, John Talbot fighting at the Battle of Crecy in 1346. It was he who bred the Talbot dog, which was an ancestor of our modern beagle.
